looks like a typical scam Chinese site to me.

badly designed with dodgy logos poor payment terms.

personally would not touch these

it is impossible to get apple products at such a price.

I checked out the site, it looks to good to be true too. I found another site that has iphones, playstation 3 etc.... *****link removed*****They claim to be based out of New Jersey, with a 800 number, excepting credit cards as a form of payment. What do you guys think? I did a search about the company in our directory, but nothing came up.

@paul1978: Thanks for your help with this one! its is much appreciated :)

@sesam: Just a couple of additional info, this supplier is pretty new having been registered just last month - so there is no way of telling how legit or safe they might be. But I think it would be safe to take Paul's word on this one.

Also, the requirements to source Apple products at wholesale are extremely high due to Apple’s desire to protect their brand value. If you want to source these items wholesale, you’ll need to fill out an application on Apple’s website and be able to meet a minimum annual purchase requirement of more than $100,000 and provide 2 business references – among other things. You can read the full requirements here:

Although there is no other way to legitimately source Apple iPhones, iPods and the iPad wholesale except through Apple themselves, you can source Apple accessories from a number of wholesalers and drop shippers. Here is a list of a few SaleHoo suppliers for Apple accessories:

(Don’t forget you need to find the Wholesale section on these supplier’s websites and either fill out an application form or contact them directly to get wholesale prices).

The other option to source Apple products is via liquidators. Liquidators can legitimately resell iPods, iPhones etc, but Apple won’t honor the warranty for products sourced this way.

Some liquidators of Apple products in our directory are:

Hope that helps get you started! If you need more supplier suggestions, or would like some other ideas for hot products to sell, please just let me know :)

Yes thank you all for the input,i did test them out and well i haven't heard from them in 2 day´s so i would say they are a scam.

200$ gone there, but instead we can declare them a scam.



sincerly,

That was a very costly test, sesam :( I mean $200 is $200.

I suggest you check the forum prior to buying from sites your are not too familiar with, at least next time we hope we can help you save your money.

So, that's another scammer down and thousands more to go!
